    Filling the Silence With the Voice of Youth

    Charles Isherwood

    June 18, 2012: The scrabbling of iguanas across a metal roof, the squawk of a parrot and other colorful noises are resounding throughout the Claire Tow Theater, the handsome new auditorium built atop Lincoln Center Theater’s Broadway home, the Vivian Beaumont Theater. But the truly exotic note in the jungle symphony of Greg Pierce’s play “Slowgirl” is the adrenaline chatter of the 17-year-old American girl who finds herself in the alien environment of rural Costa Rica. Her anxious, endless nattering reverberates like a constant klaxon horn amid the silence inhabited by her uncle, who has retreated from the world to live in solitude with nature.

    ‘Slowgirl’ by Greg Pierce at Lincoln Center’s new Off-Broadway stage

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    June 18, 2012: Lincoln Center launched a winner with its world premiere of Greg Pierce’s “Slowgirl.” The play is as captivating as the Claire Tow Theatre atop the Vivian Beaumont, the new permanent home to the four-year-old LCT3 program for developing young writers and audiences. An awkward reunion sets the action in motion. Becky (Sarah Steele) is a 17-year-old California girl — self-centered, casually potty-mouthed and in serious trouble after a booze-fueled prank has landed a dimwitted classmate (she inspires the title) in the ICU. Sterling (Zeljko Ivanek) is her absentee uncle, who, following a curdled career and relationship, has made a home in the Costa Rican jungle. Phone service is spotty, but iguanas, snakes and solitude are constants. They are parallel outcasts, haunted by scandal and nagging moral lapses.

    Thom Geier

    June 19, 2012: What would inspire two Americans to retreat to a sparsely furnished lean-to in a remote jungle in Costa Rica, a corner of the globe uncharted by GoogleEarth and bereft of reliable cellphone service? Greg Pierce's sharp new Off Broadway drama Slowgirl explores just that question in a seemingly familiar two-person drama that manages to follow and upend conventions at just about every turn.

    'Slowgirl' is tense and affecting

    Associated Press

    June 19, 2012: Sometimes a crisis will bring a family closer together, but sometimes it separates them instead. In Greg Pierce's tense, affecting new play, "Slowgirl," a family has already been fractured by a crisis seven years earlier. Now 17-year-old Becky has arrived at her reclusive, long-absentee Uncle Sterling's remote jungle cabin in Costa Rica, while in the midst of some big trouble. A spirited, well-acted and thought-provoking production opened Monday night to inaugurate the new Claire Tow Theater, atop the Vivian Beaumont, as part of the Lincoln Center Theater/LCT3 series producing rising playwrights.

    Andy Propst

    June 19, 2012: For its inaugural production in its intimate and handsomely appointed The Claire Tow Theater, Lincoln Center Theater's LCT3 program has chosen a beautifully crafted two-hander, Greg Pierce's Slowgirl. Directed with care and a sense of keen observation by Anne Kauffman and featuring a pair of delicately rendered performances by Sarah Steele and Željko Ivanek, the show fits beautifully into the space, highlighting its simple charms and simultaneously expansive capabilities.
